My Father of Love
By Penny Kotze
(Dedicated to all those battling to believe they are forgiven - KNOW that you are)
I knelt with my head down, my heart beat heavy within me.
I knew where I was, and what this meant, I was afraid to see.
I saw the hand first, as it came into my sight,
And looked up into a wonderful face, with hair that was all white.
The face was full of mercy and love, I couldn’t believe the welcome.
I leapt up into the open arms and knew that I was home.
My Heavenly Father held me tight as I wept upon His chest,
Well done my child, He said to me, come in and find perfect rest.
